From Chief Bill Westenberger
As we move into the last month of the season, we are provided the opportunities to reflect on the past and celebrate the future. Unfortunately, there are those among us with a challenged past making it difficult to see a brighter future.
Your Kennesaw Police team works hard every day through the situations that most of society would rather not see or even admit it exists. Members of our team are able to make a difference with the support of those we serve. The impact of our stewardship is rarely stronger than during the holiday season.
In the late 70's, Council Member Jerry Worthan recognized the opportunities to help children in need of our North Cobb community with Christmas gifts. Now, thirty-six years later the Kennesaw Police team still sees the increase of the need that exists in our community.
Currently, we are partnering with California Dreaming, Walgreens (Cobb Pkwy & Wade Green), Kennesaw Interstate Batteries, and Main Street Pharmacy. They have all offered to collect toys. Others like Kennesaw Business Association and Kennesaw Mountain High School have adopted families or made financial donations.
We ask that you help us make a greater impact by donating a new toy or clothes for a child in need. You can contact us at 770-422-2505 to learn more on how to help. The greatest gift we can ever receive is through giving to someone else.
Have a wonderful Holiday Season!!
Chief of Police
Office: (770) 429-4535
